REALITY CHECK: Gardner Sold Out Colorado for Trump & McConnell

Denver, CO – Senator Cory Gardner’s new TV ad once again deceives Coloradans about his real record, overtly omitting his blind allegiance to President Trump and Mitch McConnell.

This ad is a revolting attempt to distract Coloradans from the fact that Gardner is still supporting the GOP’s lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act — which guaranteed coverage for Coloradans with pre-existing conditions.”

This is Gardner’s third deceptive ad. His first TV ad is facing a complaint with the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee over breaking ethics rules and had to be edited after backlash from AAA Colorado.
